Brian Eno

May 15, 1948, Woodbridge, England

Ambient pioneer, glam rocker, hit producer, multimedia artist, technological innovator, worldbeat proponent, and self-described non-musician - over the course of his long, prolific, and immensely influential career, Brian Eno was all of these things and much, much more. ~ Allmusic: Brian Eno ~ retrieved February 18, 2014 © Allmusic

His skill at using “The Studio as a Compositional Tool” (the title of an essay by Eno) led in part to his career as a producer. His methods were recognised at the time (mid-1970s) as unique, so much so that on Genesis's The Lamb Lies Down on Broadway, he is credited with 'Enossification'; on Robert Wyatt's Ruth Is Stranger Than Richard with a Direct inject anti-jazz raygun and on John Cale's Island albums as simply being “Eno.” ~ Wikipedia: Brian Eno ~ retrieved January 22, 2016 © Wikipedia

The Talking Heads ~ Remain In Light (1980) ~ #4 Rolling Stone 100 Best Albums Of The Eighties in 1990 ~ Remain in Light may have been a commercial disappointment, but musically, the band's 1980 album - which combines funk, disco and African rhythms - was years ahead of its time. “It got great critical acclaim, and we felt that it kind of took popular music to the next phase,” says Frantz, “which is what we always wanted to do.” ~ 1990 © Rolling Stone

Roxy Music

some band info might not apply to Brian Eno,
a member from 1971 through 1973

It is curious that with both the Velvet Underground and the Talking Heads enshrined that Roxy Music; the premier Art Rock band between them has not received a serious look for induction. Roxy Music embraced the arts like no other. Their look and style were just as important to them as their carefully constructed sleek sound. Much of the New Wave and New Romantic movement can be traced back to Roxy; in fact they may have more imitators than any other artist on this list. ~ Not In Hall Of Fame: Roxy Music ~ retrieved March 12, 2014 © Not In Hall Of Fame
